I continually find that not having written a thousand lines or so of plain Ruby is impairing my programming efforts in scripting and Rails. I'm looking for a good set of homework exercises I can work through to bring up my Ruby skills. I'm an experienced programmer, I've written hundreds of thousands of lines of code in my life but I keep on having to look things up in the Ruby book. I'd feel better if I had a deeper knowledge of Ruby. Ruby quizzes, anyone? I really liked the "C Puzzle Book" back in the day. Warren

Check out The Ruby Course (http://ruby.brian-schroeder.de/course/). At the end of each section are some questions and exercises. They may not be terribly difficult, but they're very concept oriented, so they're definitely good practice. You could also try solving the puzzles in your "C Puzzle Book" too. Post your answers so we can take a peek while you're at it =) James

Check out this site: http://www.pyhthonchallenge.com Just solve each* puzzle with Ruby instead of Python. This will not only exercise your ruby knowledge but get you deep into gems and RubyForge. Roy * Puzzle #5 is about a particular Python operation that Ruby doesn't (to my knowlege) support so you'll have to solve it with Python or drop me an e-mail and I'll give you the solution.

It's like one of those picture treasure hunts you did as a kid, only while learning to program. Got to be the best way to practice. > just can't seem to get past number 2 though :P There's a forum for help and hints. What part of 2 is causing you problems?
